Two Lexington Hotels Robbed Minutes Apart

Police are investigating two hotel robberies in south Lexington Friday night, just minutes apart.

The first happened at the Hilton Suites in Lexington Green around 9 p.m., then just seven minutes later a robber hit the Hampton Inn in the Beaumont Centre.

Police do not have a good description on the suspects at this time, but they do say the man that robbed the Hampton Inn was wearing khaki colored pants, shirt, and a hat.

Police say that man robbed the front desk of the Hampton Inn and did get away with an undisclosed amount of cash.
Police say the man that tried to rob the Hilton Suites left empty handed.

Police now say they do not believe the robberies are connected.
